A high-quality digitization of the complete 1923 edition of the American Type Founders (ATF) Specimen Book. Considered by many to be the culmination of specimen printing, it is an important, and massive volume, documenting the culture of printing, advertising, and typography in the early 20th century. This issue is optimized for mobile devices. This work is in the public domain. Digitized by David Armstrong/Sevanti Letterpress.
